As was expected, the handicapper has taken a dim view of Love Your Looks five-length stroll at Kempton last time and raised her 10lb. Mike Murphy has resisted the temptation to use a claimer, however, so she may have further improvement in her. In contrast, Tidal Run is only 2lb higher than when scoring by a neck at Bath last time and should figure again but this is tougher than the soft-ground plating race Bollin Dolly recently won at Hamilton. Testing ground can be used as a legitimate excuse for CALA SANTANYI's recent poor showing at Pontefract as she'd won at Lingfield on her reappearance and Gerard Butler's filly gets another chance here.
